From the “General Introduction”:

“The selection of essays in this book converge on a common theme: the set of manuscripts written by Karl Marx between 1857 and 1858, known as Grundrisse: Foundations of the Critique of Political Economy. While the essays recognise the double character of the Grundrisse as an event and a document, they are not exercises in intellectual history. Instead, they construct concepts that Marx himself deploys in some cases partially, and in others only makes out qua concepts to then delve into the critique of the political economy discourse: modernity, history, market and crisis. In order to frame the shared problematic that underlies the order of these essays, this book begins with a synoptical presentation of Grundrisse as a document, then continues with a contextualisation of its emergence in the work of the mature Marx, followed by a synthesis of studies dedicated to this topic. Finally, it concludes with an outline of the conceptual premises shared by the contributions published here”.
